Phoenix crews herd 7 horses away from barn blaze

PHOENIX -- Firefighters had to herd horses and other animals to safety while battling a blaze that broke out among some makeshift barns in west Phoenix.

Phoenix Fire Department officials say the blaze was spotted about 2 a.m. Friday in a pasture area that also contained about 10 horses.

KPHO TV says a fire truck was able to maneuver to the barns, chicken coops and other structures and used a jet gun on top of the truck to knock down the flames.

Authorities say seven horses were trapped on the south side of the property and crews had to herd them to safety on the east side.

There's no immediate damage estimate.

Fire officials say the cause of the blaze hasn't been determined yet, but it doesn't appear to be suspicious.
